After a few years using  Roots Magic 5, 6, and 7 I am now ready to "publish" generate  a sharable CD but would like father's side only to give to that side of family and dito with mothers.


Also is there any webinar type instructions to modify , the CD data prior to publishing/burning. If so sorry as I reviewed the different Webinars but did not see that expessed info on any ..

The Shareable CD will include everyone in the database. You could drag n drop just those you want on the Shareable CD into a new blank database and create the Shareable CD from there.

Renee, thank you for such a quick response with assisting me with the solution to my problem.

I've since watched the webinar and now am using this technique with  a couple of applications. 


I'm sending these CD's to different relatives in hopes for getting them to help tracking down some of our genealogy or at most spur them onto looking around for more family pictures and/or information that they may have.
